John Steele,Adenturer




John Steele aired as a weekly program full of âsuspense and hard, fast action.â Don Douglas played our hero, John Steele, who treks sweaty-browed through jungles and deserts, fighting lions and saving women. Thrilling indeed!

Subject: John Steele, Storyteller
This series had a different approach. Steele was the storyteller, not the protagonist. He knew a guy who smuggled diamonds in the Congo, or betrayed gamblers to preserve his honor. He'd write himself into the story like Tom Robbins showing up at the end of "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues". This way he could tell stories of miners and ballplayers and soldiers of fortune without bending credulity.

And by "he", I mean the author manipulating the character of the narrator. Very pre-post-modern.
The stories are consistently well written and acted. I only wish there were more of them.

PS: the creator of this directory left the "V" out of "adenturer" and it propagated throughout all the file names.
